Ubaldo Jimenez Suspended Five Games and Fined for Drilling Rockies SS Troy Tulowitzki…


According to baseball beat writers Paul Hoynes andJordan Bastian, who were all over yesterday’s beaning festivities in Phoenix, Ubaldo Jimenez has been suspended for five games and fined an undisclosed amount for plunking former teammate Troy Tulowitzki.



The commissioner’s office had a pretty easy decision on this one as Ubaldo’s intentions could not have been more obvious considering the plunking came after Tulowitzki’s suggestion he basically shut up and move on from his less than jovial experience in Colorado.
